Riassunto: Young people across America are rediscovering G. A. Henty, the nineteenth-century literary genius whose historical adventures inspire boys toward honesty, courage, and duty. Writing from a Christian perspective, Henty weaves the adventures of a fictional boy hero together with real-life events. This stirring tale chronicles the last days of the Temple at Jerusalem. As robber bands and political infighting set the stage for the Roman destruction of Jerusalem, John, a fifteen-year-old Galilean, finds himself in the forefront of events. After escaping the massacre at Jotapata, John becomes a hero to the Jews and a scourge to the Romans. He defends Jerusalem during the Roman siege and even fights Titus himself in hand-to-hand combat. Though he is fighting a losing battle, John proves his enduring integrity and honor.
From the Publisher: A stirring tale of the last days of the Temple at Jerusalem. Robber bands and political infighting sets the stage for the Roman destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. In the face of overwhelming odds, John of Gamala does his best to save God's Temple, harrasing Roman work parties, burning Roman camps, defending Jerusalem during the Roman siege, and even fighting Titus himself in hand-to-hand combat--forging a relationship with the Roman leader that lasts until after the war. In spite of fighting a losing battle, John keeps his integrity and honor intact.
